    A quick question:

    does it make a diference for search engines the way my domain name's words are seperated.

    wordwordword.com or
    word-word-word.com

    Which one is better, and more favored by SEs?

    Thanks

    The hyphenated one is better from the perspective of search engine ranking. The non-hyphenated one is better if you want people to remember your site.

    Be wary of hyphenated domains though. I know for a fact that Inktomi takes a closer look at them for spam (a hyphenated domain isn't spam by itself, though) and I suspect Google has begun to do likewise.
